Keyword Planner Locations

I've been using the Keyword Planner to get search volumes for keywords within Africa.

Is there a way to target the whole of Africa, I'm having to manually add each country within the continent.


Is there also a way to save a previously searched keyword & location on the Keyword Planner?


Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Shirley,

Edit: Pankaj has provided various options to add multiple countries.

You can download the list of suggested keywords by the keyword planner tool and save as Excel/adwords Editor CSV file or save to google Drive.
Though if you have left the last session of Keyword research without saving or downloading the plan then AdWords Keyword planner tool offers you the option to resume the last session with the same settings.

Hi Shirley,


Couple of options here:-


1. You could add the bulk locations in one go and use this option to target multiple countries with ease.


2. AdWords Editor or AdWords API could be other work around to accomplish this.


Find more details here:-


For your second query, if you access the keyword planner section, on your first screen you get the option to continue from the last session like this:-




This would actually help you continue from where you actually left.


I hope this helps!

Hi Shirley G,
Currently Google doesn't provide option to search for keywords in whole African country .
Instead you can search for keywords data in South Africa Location alone.
If you need to know the data of specific locations, then you can search for it.
